2019 Richard Hamilton Hut Block Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale – Named after the picker’s hut at the front of the property, their Hut Block vineyards are planted on sand and black clay loam soils over a substructure of clay. We think that the intensity of their Cabernet Sauvignon can be attributed to these soils, while the mild maritime climate of McLaren Vale, in which cool evening and night breezes from the gully winds moderate the day time temperatures, suits this variety. Their emphasis is on low yielding vines that are pruned and trained to allow dappled light to reach the fruit zone to slow ripening and enhance aroma and flavour.
Rich, ripe cassis fruit showing hints of mint with oak derived mocha and vanillin highlights. Full of vibrancy, this wine has round, succulent varietal fruit with long tannins that give persistence and length.
This wine will be an attractive accompaniment to Venison, Beef Wellington, rich pasta.
Appealing on release and has sufficient structure for 6-8 years of cellaring.
